Is it ... For buy - between over bought and very over bought i.e. 20 and 80?
For sell - between over sold and very sold i.e. -20 and -80?

As with all oscillators, they tend to be useful during ranging markets, and not useful during trending markets.

So assuming you have identified only ranging periods of the market, then you are probably looking for times when the oscillator crosses up above 20 or or perhaps 50 for longs, and crosses down below 80 or perhaps 50 for shorts.

For trending days, oscillators will not work well or at the very least cannot be used in the same fashion.

Also, you will probably receive more responses and feedback in this thread:



As TheWizard and many others specifically use SMI in their trading.

Hey everyone! Is there a place where I can download the SMI5 indicator? I've found SMI helpful, but I'd like the background to change with the histogram, not the crossover. Also, any thoughts on the best way to use the SMI in general? Thanks a bunch!
